Ricardo hails from Virginia, so the multi-day road trip he took to join Austin’s office was an experience in itself. Before packing his bags, he completed a degree in business administration and economics—which originally prepared him for a finance internship in World First’s East Coast office. Then, when the opportunity came up, a referral helped Ricardo secure the promotion.
Ricardo’s days start similarly, but endless possibilities affect client accounts. After he follows up with funding checks and margin calls, Ricardo makes sure all payments are “swiftable”—a term the team uses to ensure currency checks are moving without bumps in the pipeline. When it’s time for lunch, Ricardo and his entire team head out together before monitoring client exposure.
